On the eve of the UN's Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference which starts May 3, 2010, thousands of people from around the world will gather in New York City for a weekend of inspiring and powerful activities to demand that President Obama and the leaders of the other nuclear-armed nations commence negotiations on a treaty to eliminate nuclear weapons within our lifetimes.
Please join us for the international conference April 30-May 1 and a rally, march and peace and music festival May 2! Or come for the Sunday rally, march and festival by reserving a seat on the UJP bus.
See full information on how to participate in these activities.
Nuclear Abolition is being talked about -- by President Obama and Russian President Medvedev! Obama has stated our obligations under Article VI of the NPT to draw down and abolish nukes. He has acknowledged that as a country with nuclear weapons -- AND as the only country to have ever bombed with nuclear weapons -- we need to show some leadership and cooperation. Otherwise, who are we to tell others what to do?
Members of United for Justice with Peace have reconstituted a working group for Nuclear Abolition. We are continuing to work with local cities and towns to join the Mayors for Peace and to encourage local resolutions expressing popular will to rid the world of nuclear weapons.
